To subvert grumpy monarchs, angry medieval youths scrawled condiment graffiti such as "Fran Tanner has plague" or "The king is a jerk" inside their sandwiches. Dig beneath lettuce to bring history to light with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of deli fare and drinks at Rubin's Kosher Restaurant, located in Brookline.
Named Best Deli in Boston by Boston magazine in 2008, Rubin's Kosher Restaurant stacks the sandwiches high on its menu, New York deli-style. Indulge growling stomachs with the Madison Avenue combo sandwich ($15.99), uniting hot corned beef, hot romanian pastrami, and hot tongue on your choice of bread, or eat your way through an emotionally detached cold salami sandwich ($7.99). In addition to bread-bookended bites, Rubin's also rolls out a slate of soups and entrees. A cup of homemade sweet-and-sour cabbage soup ($3.99) is ideal for diners born with ladles for hands, and herbivoyeurs can enjoy the meat-free Middle Eastern wrap, containing hummus, tabouli, and eggplant salad ($12.99). All edibles can be washed down with a refreshing Sam Adams ($4.50) or played off by a decadently patriotic slice of apple pie ($3.99).
Boston magazine featured Rubin's Kosher Restaurant in its list of The Best Sandwiches: Gut Busters and also named the business the Best of Boston 2008 Deli. The Boston Globe positively reviewed the business and Zagat gives the food a good to very good rating. More than 50 Yelpers and nine Citysearchers give it a 3.5-star average.
